Teen Book Review — The Time Traveler’s Wife


Title:The Time Traveler’s Wife

Author: Audrey Niffenegger

Stars (out of 5): 4

Review: This book featured an enthralling romantic story that was interesting because of the struggles and strains on Henry and Clare’s relationship. It was confusing, however, to think about the instances of time travel and what point in their lives Henry was experiencing.

Teen Book Review — The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo


Title: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Author: Stieg Larsson

Stars (out of 5): 4

Review: The mystery in the story was very interesting and the resolution was surprising. I enjoyed reading this book because of the suspense. Some of the violence and crimes committed were very disturbing however and it was a little confusing because of the foreign landmarks that I was not familiar with.
